Mtn bike from Guardsman; beautiful trail and ride; don't give many 5 star ratings but this trail is a must do; was an odd day so rode out to Pinebrook (car shuttle)

Awesome trail! It's nice and cool in the summer and absolutely beautiful. There are plenty of wildflowers and impressive views everywhere. The trail is not difficult - this hike/ride is a nice, relaxing way to spend an afternoon.

The best ride of the region. Usually ridden from Guardsman to Canyons or SLC this trail has everything including magnificent views, speed, technical exposed sections and climbs. This ride is truly memorable.

Great ride ! Really dusty though trails a little slippery due to loose dry dirt . Still awesome ride though . Hit ricochet on way down which was so badass

One of the most stunning hikes I've ever done. Breathtaking views pretty much the whole 12 miles looking over Park City, Big Cottonwood, and Millcreek Canyon. Lots of wildflowers right now. Started at Guardsman and had a shuttle car at the top of Millcreek Canyon which made the majority of the hike downhill and very easy, just a few fairly steep uphills mostly towards the start.
